Reports that Vice President Dr. Bawumia had taken a medical leave to the United Kingdom surprised Ghanaians two weeks ago after government made the announcements.

Upon hearing that he had been flowed to the UK to receive medical treatment, many Ghanaians criticized government for opting to fly the Vice President to Europe instead of making use of the many well equipped medical facilities already in the country.

Some commentators alleged that government's decision signified a clear lack of trust in Ghana's Medical Health system, although these reports have been heavily rejected by government.
